Christy & Fred Cook - Mélange (1993)

We should have known that Calgary was too big to have just one person putting out tapes featuring the hammered dulcimer. Even though we were aware of Tomko Lamb first, husband and wife duo Christy & Fred Cook have (had?) been at it well before him, having put out their first LP in the mid-80's (on Peter D'amico's Black Bear Records, even!). This tape is a later release, covering a range of folk music from various traditions as well as classical compositions. 

Bang on!
